From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

House of Osman was the name of the administrative structure of the Ottoman Dynasty, part of the state organization of the Ottoman Empire but nonetheless directly linked to the dynasty. The house had three distinct elements: servants (advisors, bookkeepers, bureaucrats) of the Sultan, who had more contact with the outside world, the Imperial Harem, which was closed to outsiders but constituted a highly effective ruling system, with hundreds of female servants, and the Palace School, which educated and in a sense shaped the future policy-makers of the Empire.
